My '68, 07c, NOR Z28 has the light harness and washer hose routed between the inner and outer fender.

The bezels have been removed and it is just the bare plastic grille and the black paint covers everything all the way to the outside edges.

I am presuming that you are referring to a standard grille.....so here goes.  I went by my storeroom today and while I was there I looked at my original 68 grille that is from a '68 Z28, 07C car.  The whole inside of the grille is painted silver all the way to the flat areas of the sides, top, and bottom.  The rest of the grille is black......and the black covers the entire front of the grille....all the way to the outside edges.  The back of the grille has no paint with the exception of overspray.  Hope this helps.

And mine are the original bolts from the factory.

Mine are 3 3/4" from below the head to the end of the threads....another 1/8' taper after the threads.

Paragon has a set that has the "A" headmark...here is a photo: http://www.paragonreproductions.com/popup.aspx?src=images/Product/large/1922K.jpg

If interested....here is the ordering info: http://www.paragonreproductions.com/p-358832-engine-mount-attaching-bolt-kit.aspx

BTW....John is right my Camaro mount bolts have the "A" headmark, washers, and the castle nut.

Chris.....I have a 07C 1968 Norwood car.  Haven't had a chance to get to the garage with the camara but I did go by and look.  It has a coating of black and white speckle and the gas filler cover is speckled but the screw looks like a regular phosphate one and it appears to be speckled behind the filler tube as well.

Hope that helps...

Hey Chris,
  I have a 68 Z28 with an original trunk.  I will try to get some photos today.

Would the engine mount for a 68 z28 302 be the same as what was used on the 68 350ss?
I ran into the same problem and am looking for original style mounts for a 350.

I understood the 283 and 327 to use the same mounts and 302 and 350 to use the same as well.
Not sure if this is true though.

Cheers,
John
Hey John,
According to my 1976 parts manual the 302 and 350 had the same part number.  I have found two sources and they are both Corvette speciality companies.
      Paragon Reproductions -   http://www.paragonreproductions.com/p-357341-engine-mount.aspx?SectionFilterID=0
      Long Island Corvette Supply - http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?parta~dyndetail~Z5Z5Z50000370a~Z5Z5Z5AAEXE~P35.00~~~~S2NQ104C4474197105221h~Z5Z5Z5~Z5Z5Z50000370a
     
Just not sure they are the same as the ones for the Camaro.  Might give them a call and see what their opinion is as to the fit.  Check my links above for the contact info.

Never used the Spruce but it looks like it is a lower grade version of the EN-48.  At least that is what the Seymour web page states.  And is cheaper than the EN-48.

Here is a photo of one mounted on a 68 302 Z28:     http://picasaweb.google.com/LucasRestorations/JayS68RSZ281#5252024307394294850

This photo is from an engine on a 68 Z28 in a car being restored by Lucas Restoration.  Don't know if this is the original mount but it looks like the ones displayed above.

Well if the one above is correct, try this link:     http://www.paragonreproductions.com/popup.aspx?src=images/Product/large/1720.jpg 
Does this one look correct?

If so the catalog information is:     http://www.paragonreproductions.com/p-357341-engine-mount.aspx

Haven't seen these mounts in person but I was thinking of ordering them for my '68 Z28 project.  Ceck out this link:  http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?userwatch~partnumstring~cadeiijf~104C~~~~F

They are built like the original non safety mounts.  Maybe someone has ordered these before and might have more information.

I bought mine at this link listed below but you have to buy a minimum of one case (6 Cans)
           http://www.ryderfleetproducts.com/cgi-bin/ryderfp/products/product_detail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1075969558.1242176029@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadegmkekmdecfkmcgfmdfoldflm.0&oid=49808

Like Jerry said above......it is not as thick and it shows the detail of the cast iron better.

I think Quatra is repackaging the Seymour paint and marketing under their name.......and selling it for more money.  I think John and I had this discussion before and came up with the same conclusion.

Jerry
Well I found the Seymour for a lot less than the Quanta.....bought 6 cans shipped to me for a total of $24.33.  Thanks again guys for helping me out.
